Privacy Policy

At FitMalta, we understand the importance of privacy, and it is our policy to respect your privacy in all interactions. This Privacy Policy describes how FitMalta Malta and its product FitMalta (taken together, "FitMalta", "Service", "we", "us", "our", "ours") collects use, and discloses information, and your choices concerning that information. This Privacy Policy applies to the FitMalta mobile applications, the website at, and any other interaction you may have with FitMalta. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party applications or software that integrate with FitMalta.

The Information We Collect and Receive

We collect only the information relevant to providing you with a Service, and use your information only to ensure the fulfillment of this Service. You are free to refuse our request for your information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired Services without this information. When you use FitMalta, we collect the following types of information.

Personal Information

We collect some personal information, which can be used to identify you as a person, to provide you with the FitMalta Service. This information may include but is not limited to, your email address, user name, and billing zip code.

User Information

In addition to the above personal information, to improve your experience and enable additional features of FitMalta, you may choose to provide us with user information. The information includes, but is not limited to: birth year, gender, and activity level. You may also choose to provide additional user information, such as a profile photograph, goals, foods, exercises, and notes. Other types of user information include communication with our customer support agents via the support center; messages posted to our discussion board; and information shared directly with other users who are added as friends.

Health Information

We may collect certain health information subject to GDPR protections of sensitive information in the course of providing you with a Service. Before collecting that information, we will obtain your explicit consent to allow processing. You may withdraw your consent at any time in the application settings or by deleting your data and ceasing to input new data. If you post health information to our groups or forums, you are doing so with the understanding that this information will be made public, which is then our legal basis for processing that information.

Usage Information

Like many websites and applications, we collect general usage data to analyze trends and monitor performance. This information includes, but is not limited to, browser type and operating system, pages that you visited, time spent on the Service, IP address, crash reports, cookie information and pages that referred you to us.

Geolocation Information

FitMalta collects location data to enable tracking your walking and running route and calculates the distance traveled when the phone screen is off or the app is closed. This feature uses precise geolocation data, including GPS signals, device sensors, Wi-Fi access points, and cell tower IDs. We collect this type of data if you grant us access to your location. You can always remove our access using your mobile device settings.


We use "cookies" to collect information about you and your activity across our site. A cookie is a small piece of data that our website stores on your computer, and accesses each time you visit so we can understand how you use our site and serve you content based on preferences you have specified. If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services without them. This policy covers only the use of cookies between your computer and our website.

Third-Party Fitness & Health Device Information

If you consent to share your fitness & health device information from a third-party platform, we will receive information that you have authorized to share on each synchronization with that platform. This information may include exercise minutes, calories expended, steps taken in a day, weight, and other metrics. To the extent that this information is subject to GDPR protections of sensitive health data, we will obtain explicit consent before collecting these data, in a manner consistent with our policy on health information.

  • To improve our Service, including researching and developing new features and products
  • To personalize the Service to better meet your needs
  • To communicate with you by responding to your requests, comments, and questions. If you contact us, we may use your information to respond.

  • FitMalta may use non-personal information for any business purpose consistent with this Privacy Policy, provided that that information is aggregated and/or modified so as not to enable the identification of any user.

For personal data subject to GDPR protections, we rely on several legal bases to process the data. These include:


For certain types of data, such as health information subject to GDPR protections for sensitive personal data, we will request consent before collecting and processing those data. Consent may be withdrawn at any time using your account settings and other tools.

Performance of a contract:

When processing of data is necessary to perform a contract with you, like the Terms of Service, we apply this as our legal basis for processing.

Legitimate business interests:

When we have a legitimate business interest in processing certain data, such as to improve, personalize, and develop the Service, Market new features, and promote safety and security, which is our legal basis for processing.

How We Share And Disclose Information

FitMalta treats your information as confidential. We do not sell information to any third parties.

We do not share your information except in these limited circumstances:

For Legal Reasons Or To Prevent Harm

We may preserve or disclose information about you to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to assert legal rights or defend against legal claims; or to prevent, detect, or investigate illegal activity, fraud, abuse, violations of our terms, or threats to the security of the Service or the physical safety of any person.

As Part Of A Business Transfer

FitMalta does not sell information to any third parties. If we or our assets are acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, we would include FitMalta users' information among our assets transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any parties who acquire us may continue to use your information according to this Privacy Policy.

Your Rights To Control Your Data

We provide tools to access, modify, and delete your data as an integral part of our Service and in the application settings, available regardless of where you live. If you live in the European Union or the State of California, you have certain additional legal rights to your data.

Accessing and Porting

You have a right to access a full record of all data that we control that pertains to you. This data will be delivered in an electronic format in such a manner that complies with applicable laws.

Rectify, Restrict, Limit, Delete

You have the right to rectify, restrict, limit, or delete some or all of your information. We will comply with your request in a reasonable timeframe and in a manner that complies with applicable law, subject to any superseding legal requirements, such as data retention.


Where we process your information based on our legitimate interests explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will cease processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons.

Revoke consent

Where you have previously provided your consent, such as to permit us to process health-related data about you, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your information at any time. For example, you can withdraw your consent by updating your settings or contacting us.


If you live in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority.

Receive Equal Service

You have the right to equal service, regardless of whether or not you exercise any of these rights. We do not in any way discriminate against users who exercise their rights.

Data Retention Policy

We retain information as long as it is necessary to provide the Service to you and others, subject to any legal obligations to further retain such information. Information associated with your account will generally be kept until it is no longer necessary to provide the Services or until you ask us to delete it or your account is deleted. For example, where you withdraw your consent to processing your health-related information, we will delete all health-related information you uploaded. Following the deletion of your account, it may take up to 30 days to fully delete your information and system logs from our systems. Additionally, we may retain information from deleted accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect fees, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with investigations, enforce the Terms of Service and take other actions permitted by law. The information we retain will be handled per this Privacy Policy.

Information about you that is no longer necessary and relevant to provide our Services may be de-identified and aggregated with other non-personal data to provide insights, such as statistics on the use of the Services. This information will be de-associated with your name and other identifiers.

Data Transfers

FitMalta is operated from the Malta EU, with servers located in The UK.

Information Security

We take security seriously and do what we can within commercially acceptable means to protect your information from loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, and cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data.
